WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Area Plan Commission said a mistake was made when they originally plotted the Ivy Towns and Flats complex three years ago. They're just now getting around to fix it.

Every building at the Ivy has a three digit number when they should be marked with four.

"How it happened, I don't honestly know," explained APC Executive Director Sallie Fahey. "Ultimately, our office allowed the plot to be recorded with those numbers so, bottom line it fell on our shoulders."

But now the burden falls on those living at the Ivy. 266 units are full of people inconvenienced by the change. They're forced to update their driver's license, contact utility companies, service providers and anyone else who might send mail or bills.

"We know it's painful but we feel in the long run it's much better for safety," said Fahey. 

This change to four digit addresses is expected to help emergency responders by bringing the complex in line with other places in the county. 911 dispatch will now have a copy of both new and old addresses for the transition period.

Ivy management said they were just as surprised as anyone else about the change. Vice President of marketing Mark Juleen said they're working on their costs and what the government might be responsible for. But right now, it's looking like the company will have to pay to update all of the building signage and the engraved mailboxes.

"You know, if there's any financial remedy available, you know we will kick that around as a possibility but my guess is it's not too likely," said Fahey. 

This isn't a fluke situation, it could happen to anyone.

The APC has a history of changing addresses if a mistake is made, a road name changes or safety policies are updated.

"After a while, people get accustomed to it and it settles down," said Fahey. 

The U-S Post Office and Voter Registration have been notified of the address changes.

However, it may take time for GPS and online ordering systems to update.
